Periscope Is Built into Dugout (Apr, 1940)

Periscope Is Built into Dugout

Taken “somewhere in France,” the photograph above shows a soldier attached to a Scots regiment on watch in an underground concrete shelter. Using a built-in periscope, the sentry can scan the area on all sides of the sunken dugout, and obtain a clear view of any advance of the enemy without exposing himself to the fire of snipers or enemy patrols.

    At least it’s better than the other day Mike. Not trying to be anything, just thought it was an amusing add on to Dons post is all.
